A very good foundation course on sensing and actuation

Strategically Designed...

Really interesting section of the specialization, where you learn how to connect your device to the outside world. Plenty of ways and interesting examples. The coding part sometimes is difficult to follow, but as code is available and documented, you can still grasp how it works.

The students who taught this course did an amazing job of putting together the lectures and code.
